RTR O Gauge locomotives.

The Heljan range of BR diesels in O gauge continues to expand with the addition of the Class 17 centre-cab Type 1. Building on the success of the Heljan OO gauge ‘Clayton’, this new locomotive will feature fine detail throughout, twin motor bogies, LED lighting functions, etched grilles, sprung buffers and has been designed for easy DCC and sound installation plus provision for an ESU smoke unit.

Design work has already completed and we expect to see the first test samples early in 2020, so far we have seen the blue fully finished example as shown here and should receive images of the others in the coming months. Once we have more images of the test sample we will update the website. Provisionally four liveries are planned. As of yet no price has been set for the loco.

Thanks goes out to Brian Daniels for supplying the images and who has painted this one.

Expected release date for this loco is hopefully late 2020

We are taking advance orders for these now for despatch as soon as they become available

As always we will also offer our usual service of numbering the locomotives in our own workshop for an additional £25.00 or an additional £65.00 to number and weather.

We will also be offering our sound equipping service based on the ESU LKoksound v5L for an additional £225.00, if on the other hand it turns out to be the ESU v5XL then the cost will be £310.00 for sound. We have pointed out to Heljan that the ESU L chip has not provision for a smoke unit so we will have to wait and see what the motherboard in there is designed to take.
